Convert your company’s “whoops” Facebook Profile to a Page

by | Mar 31, 2011 | At Checkerboard, Integrated Marketing, Social Media | 2 comments

You have a thriving Facebook community for your company, which is great! To be specific, you have 431 friends on your company’s Facebook profile. Wait, Did I just say “friends” and “profile”? You’re probably wondering why I said that, considering companies and products are supposed to have Pages and fans, not Profiles and friends.

Whoops. Are you one of the many companies who built your brand on a Facebook Profile versus a Facebook Page? Per Facebook rules, Profiles are strictly for people, and Pages strictly for businesses. Well, we’ve got some good news for you: Facebook has just released a tool that will let you convert your “whoops” company Profile into a Page. The best part of this is that your “friends” are automatically transferred over as “fans”, so you don’t have to worry about losing those loyal 431 people and starting over from scratch.

Check out this article on Mashable to learn more about how to make the switch, and what to expect when you do.
